Creating a Roadmap for Leadership Succession, a 2-part series with Betsy Lieberman (Oct 31 & Nov 7)

July 30th, 2014

Creating a Roadmap for Leadership Succession, a 2-part series with Betsy Lieberman (Oct 31 & Nov 7)
Event on 2014-11-07 09:30:00

As nonprofit leaders we spend a lot of time focused on building success in our organizations. We drive results through long days at the computer and countless meetings, and there’s no doubt that the work is often challenging. You don’t need to look far at all to find phenomenal organizations whose leaders are creating impact through talent, dedication, and sometimes sheer force of will.

Did you know? 

  • Only 1 in 5 organizations has a written succession plan to help ensure ongoing success for their organization.  
  • 2/3rd of nonprofit executives report that they are planning to leave their positions by 2016.  
  • Studies show  we often have done little to support the leadership development of people in our organizations so that they are prepared to take on executive roles.

Who should attend

So we find ourselves at a crossroads in our sector. We know leadership transitions are coming, and we’re under-prepared to address these transitions. If you want to prepare a plan for yourself and your organization, these sessions will give you a roadmap.

Remember, because of the importance of preparing for unplanned transitions (that proverbial bus that is after us) you do not need to be planning for a transition in the near future for this to be relevant to you.

About the sessions

501 Commons is partnering with Betsy Lieberman to bring you these sessions. Betsy had the wonderful opportunity to plan for the ED transition at Building Changes, supported by the board and Alice Shobe, the current executive director. In the last year Betsy has worked with a number of other-non-profits in this community to do succession planning.

This will be a two session workshop from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm on Friday, October 31st and Friday, November 7th, geared  to nonprofit leaders looking at issues around transitions, succession planning, and leadership development. At the end of these two sessions you will have a roadmap and  tools to develop a succession plan for your organization.  

October 31st session:

  • Data on nonprofit executive transitions
  • A framework for developing a succession plan
  • Advice on setting a timeline, working with your board and leadership team, messaging for staff
  • A conversation regarding your organization’s specific needs, what you as a leader need to put a plan in place, and any outstanding questions you might have
  • Preparation work for a 2nd session

November 7th session:

  • A roadmap for the development of a simple plan using the provided framework
  • Discussion of next steps for each ED
  • Identification of additional support/resources needed to implement your plan
  • Feedback to Betsy and 501 Commons on how the sessions and tools worked for you.

 Members of 501 Commons, Global WA, and Washington Nonprofits are eligible for the member discount price.
